    Why all the dB link stuff? o.0... That's what I bought when I first started. I used a 4 gauge kit from them. it doesn't even come close to the flexibility and quality feel of my AT 1/0.

    Everything else is looking spiffy. Nice and clean in the trunk!

    Running in to a bit of a snag. Just talked to Atomic and the dealer I went thru, they are having conflicts. So I was told that if they decide to ship the Atomic AP8's I would be getting them with NO warranty. So I called my dealer and stated that if they are 0 warranty I don't want the subs. So I will know by the end of the day if I am getting a refund of my money or not.

    Well I should be getting my money back today and putting in an order for Cadence S2W8 S2's. Screw Atomic, I will NEVER promote their products again

    Well somewhat of a change. Just purchased these

    Cadence S2W8 S2's

    Checked with Cadence and was told with the smaller enclosure they should handle 1k each easily

    that is a good looking box, and yes, size/tuning? the whole layout looks good, i thought about those subs but got a trade offer i coundn't refuse for my rf power t1000bdcp. i want to know how it sound when you complete the build.

    The enclosure is 1.5^cu.ft net tuned to 34hz. In car tuning should be about 43hz. Talked to Cadence Tech before I purchased and they stated with the amount of power I have on tap, the smaller enclosure is actually better.

    Heres a tease

    Re: 2011 VW Golf MKVI 2dr



    In and hooked up. I am barely feeding any power to these. I am surprised, on White Girl with two lil 8's and gain on the amp almost 0, I am getting a lil windshield flex. I am gonna give them a month and turn them up to about 2k to the pair. With the amount of excursion I am getting at 34.64v/ac or 1200 watts, they are barely moving, I think these are underrated as far as power.
